Acts: Life In The Spirit
Following the Spirit’s Lead
Acts 8:26-40

The more we learn to listen to the Holy Spirit; the more God will use us to help others come to know Him.

I. God Wants Believers to Go and Share the Good News
Much of the book of Acts finds believers doing just that: going out and telling people that God loves them and is offering them forgiveness and eternal life.

The biggest single reason newcomers give for coming to church is that someone invited them.

II. Sometimes God Leads Us on a Need-to-Know Basis
The angel didn’t tell him why he was supposed to go.
He just told him to get ready and go.

III. We Must Prepare Ourselves to Explain
God’s Word Clearly to Others Always be ready to explain it. That means we need to know God’s word.

IV. God Draws People to Himself through Our Obedience
As His followers told others about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, people from every tribe and nation would come to know Him.
